Artwork description:

Golden Lotus is a series of artworks reminiscent of the Chinese foot binding custom in the last century. ‘…foot binding was a painful practice and significantly limited the mobility of women, resulting in lifelong disabilities for most of its subjects.’ The ideal length for a bound foot was around 11 centimeters. ‘Walking on bound feet necessitated bending the knees slightly and swaying to maintain proper movement and balance, a dainty walk that was also considered to be erotically attractive to some men.’ I made this series of paintings to commemorate the success of anti-foot binding campaign in the early 20th century so the modern Chinese women do not have to live in agony anymore.
